Children are welcome for lunch and early evening, though we don't have a  separate children's menu or high chairs. We regret it is not practical to allow buggies or prams in the dining rooms. We ask that under 8s leave the dining rooms by 8pm.

We regret that  the character of our historic, listed buildings means they are not wheelchair accessible. Most areas are accessed via original stairs with four steps to the original Witchery (and a further four to the lavatories) and fourteen stone stairs into The Secret Garden.
